Mar 11, 2017"An especially recommended addition to community library collections for the enduring benefit of their communities, July 20, 2009" 5.0 out of 5 stars By Midwest Book Review (Oregon, WI USA) Sooner or later, in every young life there will occur a deeply personal loss of a beloved family member or friend. That is something every parent is keenly aware of and wanting to provide some kind of help and consolation in their child's grief. That's what author Laura Olivieri experienced in her own life. It's also what inspired her to write "Where Are You?: A Child's Book About Loss". Very nicely illustrated in full color by Kristin Elder, this story about the death of a young boy's father and the lonely absences from his life, as well as the ultimate realization that it is within his heart and memory that he will continue to be close to his father, is a simply wonderful message to share with any other child who is grieving a similar loss in their young lives. "Where... More > Are You?" is an especially recommended addition to community library collections for the enduring benefit of their communities.< Less
Mar 3, 2017I'm writing this, hoping Laura Olivieri will read it because I very much want to speak with her. I'm sitting here in tears after reading this book. I am in the exact same situation with my son and I'm in awe that I happened to pick up a book written by an author who had the same experience as me (which I believe is not too common). I really want to get in touch and see how things are now. It's only been 18 months since my son's father passed and I have so many concerns and it's such a tough journey. What's even more amazing to me is that this book says exactly what I've been saying to him when he asks about his father. I'm just in awe right now. Very sweet book. I'm so thankful that it was written and hope it will help my little guy. <3
Jun 27, 2008"Super Sweet" This wonderfully caring book leaves you feeling hopeful and comforted. Young children will be able to connect with the simple yet profound messages, and enjoy the beautiful illustrations. For those who have experienced loss, it will help ease the transition from pain to acceptance, to understanding and appreciation for the loved ones around them. My daughter is one and a half years old. And though it hurts her mom & me to think about it, we know she will eventually become aware of and question the concepts of loss and death in the family. Its nice to know we will have this wonderful book to help her understand those things and help us all get through them together. Our thanks...
Apr 16, 2008"THIS LITTLE BOOK IS JUST RIGHT" It is just the right size to snuggle a little child on your lap and read together. The words are simple and the ideas are easy to understand even for a very young child. Hold them close. Look at and talk about the pictures. Compare what has happened in their life to the boy in the story. Let them know that they can keep the memory always in their mind and the love always in their heart, and their loved one is always right here.
